Well.......

well Just Check if the sunroof close all of it also the one the opens a little check if it close and when you push it back then close it check if it closes also you can do is to check if the rubber that holds the sun roff is not cut or damage if it is water will get in there one way you can do it buy a new one or just put sillicon on it

The J's do have a common problem with sunroof rails .Make sure when closed both sides of panel are evenly flush with roof.If not you will have to change the rail{very expensive}.You may have to "wedge" the offending side up from the inside.Unfortunatly this disables sunroof operation.If this is not the case you need to replace the seal around the panel and check your 4 drains{corners}.To check drains open sunroof fully,pour a cup of water at each corner of the rail,water should exit behind each corresponding wheel.If you need to replace the seal around the panel let me know{it's a bit tricky releasing the inside finisher}.
Good luck
